About the Program:  We’re discussing ecclesiology (the doctrine of the church). Because we’ll have a few churches together, this will be a great time to emphasize that church is not simply a local congregation. We’re putting a bit of emphasis on a call to take up your faith. Rev. Denyse Barnes uses a phrase, “Now it’s up to you.” Your parents carried your faith until now, but now it’s up to you!

Adult Chaperones: Adult chaperones are expected to be Safe Gatherings certified by your local congregation. Participating churches are expected to send appropriate number of chaperones with their confirmands at the same rate of $40/person.
